Fair Isle Knitted Hat and Mittens

One of the things that has been keeping me busy in the hospital is knitting. Last winter I made these fair isle mittens. The project took an entire year to complete. I wanted a hat to go with the mittens, so I began this one. I finished it in under two weeks. I guess that's what happens when you have less to focus on.

I told Jemma I was going to make her a hat next. After spending some time laying out the design, she decided to make a design of her own. So......... I've decided to make the hat she designed. Can you guess what it will look like? I'm not telling. You'll have to wait and see....... you might have to wait a long time because we are supposed to be going home on Friday. That means less time to knit, but more time at home doing normal stuff.
